GRAND ISLAND, NEBRASKA. — Titan Tire Corporation, a subsidiary of Titan International, Inc., will be hosting a tire auction for the FFA at the Husker Harvest Days Show on Wednesday, September 10, 2014. All proceeds from the tire auction will benefit FFA members in Nebraska. Last year, the first Nebraska FFA auction hosted by Titan Tire made a significant amount of donations totaling $45,000. With such a strong turn out their first year, Titan Tire and FFA hope to grow the auction to new heights and keep the enthusiasm mounting.
“We take great pride in supporting the FFA and helping to benefit the next generation of growers,” says Scott Sloan, agricultural product manager at Titan Tire Corporation. “We’ve been doing this very successfully for years at Farm Progress and Sunbelt Ag Expo, and it’s great to see that the event went off without a hitch at our first year doing it in Nebraska.”
• Tire auction – Starting at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 10th, event-goers can place bids on a selection of Titan and Goodyear Farm tires for everything from skid steers and backhoes to implements, tractors and combines.
